Subject Re: Cayenne ASF proposal

Hi Brian,

I'm happy to mentor. I'm not  a member of ASF (I'm a committer/PMC on  
MyFaces) and I thought you had to be an ASF member to mentor. If I'm  
allowed as a mentor I'd be glad to help out!

Do you want me to post to the general@incubator list? Or should it  
come from you?

Can you sponsor directly? Or maybe the correct question is, who  
should we list as our sponsor? I think we'd (the cayenne community)  
would be glad to go into DB to start if that is the best fit for now.  
We are open to where ever the best fit is. The TLP request is because  
cayenne is headed to be much more than your fathers OR mapping  
framework :-)

I added myself as a mentor and removed the DB PMC sponsorship  
language on the proposal page.

Thanks again!
